Re: Not so funny real life Capt Trips thread

Am I a bad person for wanting Covid-19 to get really bad in red and swing states until November? I'd be in favor of positive treatments and vaccines after that.

One of our old friends posted a powerful statement on FB today about his life as a black man. If you are on fb, you likely saw it. If not, I think this link will get you there.

Kind of off the subject, a couple years ago we received a panini press grill as a gift, and thought we'd rarely use it. But in actuality, most meat leftovers end up a couple days later as part of a panini sandwich. We go through a lot of fresh mozzarella in the paninis, too.
